We provide training for all aspects of the game. With 12 professional trainers, we are able to provide individualized training to players of all ages. In addition to 1-on-1 lessons, we also provide specialized clinics and group lessons. Inquire for details.
Pitching is one of the core aspects of our organization. All of our pitching instructors have either player or coaching experience at the high school and/or collegiate level. We break down the fundamentals of the pitching motion and focus on key points such as pitch location and accuracy, ball spin, and speed. We also provide instruction for the development of multiple pitches, along with improving game endurance and enhancing the players mental focus.
Our offensive hitting program provides the training players need to be successful at the plate. Besides learning proper hitting mechanics, our players will be able to develop specialized hitting techniques such as slapping and bunting, while also learning situational hitting techniques.
As a huge part of the game, the catching position is crucial at all ages. Catching trainers teach defensive skills that mold successful catchers out of our players. In addition to the basic skills students will learn framing, blocking, throw downs, pick offs, and other mental aspects of the game.
“Offense wins games and defense wins championships!” Defensive skills are critical for a player’s success. Students will learn general techniques such as fielding, throwing, base coverage, and proper footwork. Position specific skills can also be incorporated for even more advanced development.
Throughout the year Softball Fans Academy offers clinics that focus on specific skills in a group setting. There are opportunities for beginners and advanced players as well. Please click the “events” tab and check our Facebook page to stay up do date and informed on clinic offerings.
SMALL GROUP TRAINING
Our Small Group Training allows our players to develop in a team environment. Two to three players are able to work with a trainer to learn specialized and group skills. This technique provides the players the opportunity to learn to work together on the field and develop the skills needed to work as a team.
